According to Breaking News, Peters "rose from her seat and began yelling" after Judge Michael Coughlan ordered that an immediate medical and psychiatric assessment be carried out.

"I stabbed the man in full knowledge of what was going on! Self defence - no psychiatric assessment," she said.

She has been remanded in custody and will appear in court next Thursday.
